Mood's Covered Bridge #2 . Perkasie . Pennsylvaniaa . Watercolor . 9" x 12"

... not only is this the second time I've painted this bridge... it's also the second Mood's Bridge. The original 1874 Mood's Bridge was burned to the deck by arsonists in 2004. This bridge is a fairly faithful reproduction, erected in 2007. Mood's Covered Bridge has been photographed and painted often, usually viewed from what is now a more pleasant, downstream, park like setting. This is an upstream view, looking west in 2020, from the north bank of the Perkiomen Branch Creek. Few people, other than a few determined fishers, meander back here due to the dense undergrowth and irregular terrain... which, of course... is why I'm here.
